Grandmas

This is the story about my grandmothers – Antonina and Zinaida, they were born in 1927 and 1929 in a big family. They lived through the hunger in Ukraine in 1933-1934. Their father was sentenced to death but he managed to run away. Their mother had to give Zinaida to the orphanage. During the war Germans were making them dig the trenches and after the war they were working at a quarry to feed the family of seven people. In 1945 they were awarded medals as the war participants. After the war they moved to Simferopol and worked at a school canteen. All their life they live together.
